All the bridges on the canal are numbered.
The pub/restaurant below was once called "The Crawford Arms". It was refurbished and named "Bridge 63" as it is located near the said bridge. However, it didn't attract many customers and was left to decay.
Many narrow boats are moored on this stretch of the canal.
People usually try to give their boats interesting names. This one is better than most!
These are mallards (Anas platyrhynchos), two males and a female. These ducks are often seen on the canal and other stretches of water around here. I believe they are also widespread in other countries.
I don't often get this close to a heron. This one was very accomodating. I should really call it a "grey heron" (Ardea cinera). Beautiful bird.
